Who I Am

Warmth of a Smile

Yesterday, today and tomorrow, I am a wife and a mother and a woman. I do not define myself by my family, but rather allow them to help me refine my definition.

As a wife,  I sacrifice for my country as I support my husband and his fellow servicemen and women in their efforts to protect the freedoms I enjoy.

As a mother, I am endlessly learning new things so that I may be better equipped to teach my children the skills and lessons they will need when I am no longer by their sides.

As a woman, I believe that I will be defined by what I do and what I say.  However, I define myself by what I learn and what I believe. These definitions will sometimes match, but often times differ as my actions and words are misinterpreted by those too quick to judge.

I like who I am and who I am growing to be.  I live a rather isolated life physically, but through technology, isolation can be eliminated. My social anxiety diminishes when the words I speak can be edited before I speak them.  The limitations of a weary body do not impede me as I expand my world from my computer.  Some may say that the internet does not represent the real world, I say that the internet is a link to our past, our present and can help us forge our future.

Why I Write

Over the years I have been known to say things worth remembering, but I usually didn’t take the time to write them down and now I have forgotten most of them.  At times I have instructed my children to write down my wise words, but they too neglected picking up a pencil.

In the effort of recording my random thoughts and observations, I have started this blog.  Some thoughts and observations may be seem odd, others might be witty and many might contain wisdom, but by the random nature of random thoughts, they will be posted randomly.

So if you like what you read, be sure to follow me on WordPress, by email or at my Pithy Ponderings Facebook page, as I will post a link to that page each time I post to this blog.

As a note please feel free to write comments if you would like, but know ahead of time that I will delete anything abusively negative because this is my world of pithy ponderings and I want to keep it positive.
